Chapter 810: Old Devil Needle
The Apocalyptic First Sword was not flashy, appearing just like a very simple move.
However, the Apocalyptic First Sword fused together with the Dao of Ripple produced an extremely huge disturbance. The entire Slaughter Domain had formed a huge maelstrom, with a spear present right at its eye! Xue Ying had superiority in his speed and as he pierced directly towards Senior Disciple Brother Zhe Qu Yong. Even though this enormous incoming threat loom upon Zhe Qu Yong , he was still confident of himself and continued onward with his head lowered. This clash felt like a meteorite smashing down.
The spearhead rotated, causing a depression to appear on the head of Zhe Qu Yong. However, due to the protection of the golden robe on his body, the spearhead could not pierce through. Nevertheless, the terrifying power was continuously permeating through it, causing his head to directly cave in and very soon, his neck was directly destroyed.
However, with a twist, his enormous body retreated rapidly, before yet another head grew out. Shock filled the small eyes of his as he stared at Xue Ying. Giving a slight nod, he said: “I admit defeat, and I wholeheartedly accept losing to this spear technique of yours!” Even though the life force on his body was extremely strong, he would most likely die after eight to ten moves.
The spectators were all shocked.
“The Apocalyptic First Sword is unexpectedly not the strongest killing move of Senior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying? He actually has a stronger spear technique?”
“That’s the 4th rank.”
It was an uproar. After all, the strength of Senior Disciple Brother Zhe Qu Yong was publicly recognized. Nonetheless, he was defeated, with this victory being sufficient for other True God disciples to start admiring Xue Ying. Even the eyes of the Outer Hall Elders were bright as they looked at Xue Ying with delight.
But Forefather Tian Yu, Swordmaster, the Hall Masters and some of the Inner Hall Elders, Outer Hall Elders and disciples who had done some research into the “13 Apocalyptic Swords” realized that the stronger spear technique which Xue Ying displayed had used the ‘Apocalyptic First Sword’ as base before fusing in other laws and profound mysteries!
Only who had reached sufficient profoundness in the realm or to have sufficient research into the 13 Apocalyptic Swords would be able to determine this point.
As for Hall Masters and those with higher realm, they were able to see even more!
“He is actually able to tweak the Apocalyptic First Sword? Fusing the Dao of Ripple with the Apocalyptic First Sword?” There were Hall Masters who felt astonished by the side.
“The Apocalyptic First Sword is extremely perfect. It is pretty incredible if the True God Ruler disciples are able to learn it. However, it is nigh impossible for them to tweak it! But this Dong Bo Xue Ying is able to alter the Apocalyptic First Sword, fusing in the Dao of Ripple. This, this is too amazing.”
“He has indeed altered the Apocalyptic First Sword!”
These Hall Masters had extremely astute visions.
They were able to determine that the spear technique displayed by Xue Ying after that was not just the Apocalyptic First Sword, but one that was fused with other Daos. Instead, he even had made some minute tweaks to the Apocalyptic First Sword, making the fusion with the Dao of Ripple even more perfect!
If it was merely supplementing the technique, it would not be enough to startle these Hall Masters despite how formidable one would need to do so.
Instead, he was actually able to tweak it… this was indicative that Xue Ying had reached the stage where he could determine the usage of how Forefather Tian Yu had in mind when he first created the ‘Apocalyptic First Sword’! Furthermore, he even dared to tweak it and even improve its power!
“To dare attempt to tweak the Apocalyptic First Sword and even managing to succeed.” Seated at the highest area, the white-haired male ‘Swordmaster’ said, “He is still so young. It seems that he has hopes of cultivating the ‘Apocalyptic Second Sword’ while still in the Ruler realm.”
In the entire history of Great Void Heaven Temple, there was only one person who cultivated the Apocalyptic Second Sword as a Ruler! One could see how difficult it was.
Forefather Tian Yu looked beneath. He chuckled heartily as he replied: “Haha, he is indeed the person who came from the same cosmos as you and Ancestor Devil. Very amazing indeed! Within this batch of True God disciples, only Dong Bo Xue Ying and the first-ranked Rain Sword Guest have the capability of tweaking a cosmos ranked absolute art. However, Rain Sword Guest has cultivated for a much longer period, though his comprehension capabilities are much worse than Dong Bo Xue Ying’s.”
“Mn, comparing potential, huh. Dong Bo Xue Ying is absolutely the first in this batch of True God disciples.” The Swordmaster replied in agreement.
It depended on combat power, the age, and experiences of the user.
Xue Ying had reached such a deep attainment in the laws and profound mysteries that it was comparable to the first-ranked ‘Rain Sword Guest’! Furthermore, he cultivated for a much shorter period, cultivating in the Starting Cosmos for the majority of his life before arriving in the sacred world not too long ago.
Only the strongest ten existences in the Great Void Heaven Temple were able to determine that Xue Ying had tweaked the Apocalyptic First Sword.
Those disciples and elders who had cultivated the “13 Apocalyptic Swords” before could only see that this move used the Apocalyptic First Sword as the base. As for the subtle tweaks?
This judgment skills had too great of a requirement on one’s realm!
As the nine Hall Masters, Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster were discussing above, the expression of praise on their faces, made one of the golden-robed disciples unhappy.
“Isn’t it just defeating that fool Zhe Qu Yong? Yet, why are the Hall Masters so approving of it?” The second-ranked green-browed thin male, ‘Old Devil Needle’ turned to Xue Ying coldly with his eyes, “I’ll just trample him beneath my feet! Let’s see if the Hall Masters still praise him or not!” He did not cultivate the 13 Apocalyptic Swords, thus he could not see how profound that spear technique Xue Ying had displayed, even less about why the Hall Masters were praising Xue Ying! That was precisely due to the latter having tweaked a cosmos ranked absolute art!
Old Devil Needle.
He was originally called ‘Forefather Needle’, yet he was forced to change his name. Clearly, the deranged temperament of his was clearly stuck deep in his bones.
Fortunately, the Great Void Heaven Temple was willing to receive all kinds of people. As long as the disciples did not disobey the rules of the Heaven Temple, they would accept even these slightly wicked cultivators.
“Sou.” Old Devil Needle directly flew out.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, you are truly insolent to challenge all the golden-robed disciples one after another. I’ll let you know how far off that your little combat power is!” Old Devil Needle flew out in mid-air, directly announcing out, causing his voice to reverberate in the surroundings.
Floating midair, the golden-robed disciple Xue Ying looked towards Old Devil Needle with slight astonishment.
He was challenging the golden-robed disciples. Even though he won, he did not lose his composure. Furthermore, his challenge to others was compliant to the rules of the ranking battle. So, how was he being insolent?
This was ultimately the first time Xue Ying visited the Great Void Heaven Temple. Even though he had obtained a large amount of information–knowing about the combat power of Old Devil Needle–he did not understand the temper of ‘Old Devil Needle’.
“Senior Disciple Brother Old Devil Needle wants to challenge me to a battle? I am more than happy to do so.” Xue Ying chuckled, “Please.”
“Then I’ll take this chance to teach you properly.” Old Devil Needle remained as arrogant as ever. Despite that, being ranked second just after Rain Sword Guest, he possessed the qualifications to do so. Compared to other golden-robed disciples, there was a very huge disparity between their power! Rain Sword Guest was able to stand out as he had created his killing move after altering a cosmos ranked absolute art.
As for Old Devil Needle, he had cultivated an extremely ancient and terrifying ancient cultivation technique!
Old Devil Needle immediately took action, with the black lone horn on his forehead abruptly lighting up.
“Hong hong hong!”
More than a hundred black streams of light suddenly appeared in the world, before proceeding to charge right towards Xue Ying. These black streams of light moved a such a speed that was the fastest Xue Ying had ever experienced amongst the True God Rulers. Seemingly in an instant, all of them had arrived before him.
Xue Ying originally wanted to hide into his Mirage World, while displaying his spear techniques and also the Slaughter Domain!
Nonetheless, those black stream lights were too fast. More than a hundred black stream lights had traveled right into the Mirage World seemingly in the blink of an eye. Their power had merely been slightly affected, dropping to 80-90% of their original force.
“Dang dang dang.” Xue Ying did not have sufficient time to parry against those attacks with his spear technique, as those stream of lights were all exquisite and very fast. At this very moment, they starting bombarding his body.
Nonetheless, the golden robe remained as firm as ever.
Being a Voidwalker, Xue Ying’s body turned illusory as he tried his best to divert the incoming impact into the void. What’s left of the force that had impacted against his Void God level body wasn’t able to threaten him at all.
” Indeed, the apex of the strongest ancient cultivation techniques are formidable.” Xue Ying sighed.
The ancient cultivation had all sorts of specialties. Some were very powerful and defiant. Old Devil Needle did not really utilize any formidable techniques. He was purely relying on his talent on the ancient cultivation before being able to attack Xue Ying’s body!
“Junior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying, with this bit of combat power, I suggest that you continue training on.” Old Devil Needle sneered. His eyes which were glowing in green turned towards the distant void. He was able to sense Xue Ying who was currently hiding in the Mirage World.
